Trip Overview

Mount Makalu Expedition ( 8,463 m) is also very famous expedition from the early in the world. The fifth highest mountain, Mt Makalu lies in the Khumbu region of North-eastern Nepal. Mt Makalu has two subsidiary peaks. Kangchungtse or Makalu II (7,678mtr.) is north-northwest of the main summit while Chomo Lonzo, the other peak, lies north of it. On 15th May 1955, Lionel Terray and Jean Couzy, members of a French expedition led by Jean Franco reached the summit of Mt Makalu. The following day, Franco, G. Magnone and Sherpa Gyaltsen Norbu also summitted. The north face and the north-east ridge via which they climbed became the standard route for climbers who came after them. This expedition is one of the most difficult mountain to attempt in the world.

Over the followings years, mountaineers climbed over the south-east ridge, the West Pillar route. Makalu is considered one of the toughest mountains to climb. Although many sherpas climbed the mountain in the 1950s, they were Indian nationals and it was only on 1st May 1978, that Ang Chepal Sherap became the first Nepali citizen to summit the peak. Still, it is relatively less attempted mountain of Nepal. So far, the number of individual climbers who have attempted Makalu is only some 300+. Therefore, if you are going to attempt the Makalu, you need to have a lot of mountaineering experience including one attempt on an 8,000 meter before.
